Tokyo essentials - threads and hi fi components
We rounded off our short stay in Tokyo with a bit more exploring and some essential shopping - sashiko threads from Yuzawaya in Kamata (which usually has a good selection) and a trip to Akihabara for Glyn.
This time the stalls had what he wanted - silicone tubing, Nikon Muse non polarised signal capacitors, and 4mm gold plated sockets to upgrade the speaker terminals on the Tannoy drivers. Last time, he managed to ask for things that even every stall in Akihabara didn't have!
Then a quick trip to Tokyu Hands in Ikebukuro to pick up a few bits and pieces for his next turntable project - ebony stripwood and brass for a new counterweight on the tone arm.
